Using the Address Book
The address book enables you to select multiple email recipients or senders without having to enter their individual full email addresses. It automatically obtains names and email addresses from the Employee and ExternalContact business objects.
You can access the address book from any email-related business object. For example, when defining a quick action that generates an email, the application displays the address book.
You can add contacts from your organizational unit user or team list.
1.Log into the Service Manager Application.
2.Open the Email workspace. The application displays a list of emails.
3.Double-click a record to view the details.
The application displays the following four address fields:
•From: This field can only contain one email address. By default, the owner is the sender. In some cases (such as when defining a quick action), you can designate a different sender.
•To: The primary email recipients
•CC: The secondary email recipients. (Literally means "carbon copy".)
•BCC: The secondary email recipients whose addresses are not seen by other recipients. (Literally means "blind carbon copy").
4.Next to the corresponding address field, click Address Book. The application displays the Select Email Addresses dialog box.
